Yup, that's the one. Calling all FSUers.

ETA: I am nothing if not easily led astray. I am now going to Giselle on Monday. Will report.

You are on your own on this one; I find Julie Kent to be the most boring and uninteresting of dancers out there. She leaves such a vapid impression every time I see her that I don't even recognize her the next time I go. There is no there there as they say. Sorry, not a fan.

Do you honestly think I am going to see "Giselle" on that particular night because Julie is doing the role? She is dancing with JOSE!
Julie is not everyone's cup of tea, I know, but everyone has their own likes and dislikes and that's fine. Personally, I don't get any of the Daniil Simpkin worship and gnash my teeth at the mention of his name. :scream:
If anyone criticizes Jose here, however, things will get ugly. :lol:

I envy all of you!
I'll look forward to the "FSU report"(s).

Me too! :)

Marge, hope you enjoy Giselle tonight. I'm seeing the Saturday evening performance. I'm excited to see Giselle again, because the only other time I saw it, I had my (now ex) boyfriend with me and he was cracking immature "men in tights" jokes the whole time and generally wouldn't behave himself! Huge distraction :rolleyes:

I'm going Saturday too - my birthday present a week early!

Excited to see Cojocaru in her best role.

I haven't seen DS enough to decide if I worship or not. However, not even Jose could get me to see a Giselle with Julie. One of the worst Swan Lakes I ever saw was Jose with Diana V. They brought out the worst in each other and were a total stylistic mismatch. He came out of it much better than she did and it was some time before I wanted to see her in a big role again. In short, at this point, I have to have some hope that the partnership will work - one dancer is not usually enough to get me to commit to a ticket.
